Rapelling Headstone

JOSHUA TREE NATIONAL PARK

As with many things in life, timing is everything. I was driving past Ryan Campground and happened to notice a climber on Headstone Rock. I pulled into the campground and took a couple quick shots from the car. Then, wanting to get even closer, I paused for a moment to change lenses. Big mistake. When I looked back up she was already down. Just that quick.

“There’s a lot more going on than just the climbing. They’re outdoor experiences, they’re mental experiences, they’re spiritual experiences. There’s a lot going on, but you got to have the catalyst. The catalyst is the climbing.” — Todd Gordon
